Mental Health

We understand mental illness. Prior to entering a home to provide care, we assess the level of assistance required as a whole and collaborate as a team to determine a comprehensive care plan. Each care plan is constructed with goals and objectives for individuals to achieve with the support and encouragement of their caregivers.

Areas of focus may include but are not limited to: medication reminders, personal hygiene, maintaining a clean and safe living environment, educating and assisting with healthy meal plans, meal preparation, attending community events to encourage socialization, and exploring work or business opportunities.

Transitional Case Management

A Transitional Case Manager (TCM) aids individuals in all aspects of transitioning from institutional to independent living. TCM’s prepare their individuals for discharge into the community by assisting with a variety of necessities including but not limited to: housing, medical, educational, and functional supports.

Community Support Professional

A Community Support Professional (CSP) works one on one with individuals to help them achieve goals outlined in their personalized recovery plan. A CSP visits the individual’s home on a regular basis to perform specific, customized, and comprehensive rehabilitation services such as skill-building, coping mechanisms, financial management, medical appointments, and community immersion.

Community Support Specialist

A Community Support Specialist (CSS) assists individuals with sober support in the community. A CSS can aid in activities such as scheduling, transporting, and attending sober support meetings. 

Peer Support Specialist

A Peer Support Specialist (PSS) provides guidance to individuals with substance abuse issues. A PSS might assist with coping skills and/or attend substance abuse meetings in the community to help an individual maintain sobriety.    

Recovery Assistant

A Recovery Assistant (RA) is a trained professional who provides in-home care to individuals living with a mental illness. The RA’s responsibilities range from prompting & cuing medication and matters of personal hygiene, assisting with household tasks, engaging individuals in community/social activities, and acting as a companion and advocate as needed. All RA’s are required by the state of Connecticut to complete comprehensive training and exams prior to working with individuals.
